senator lindsey graham of south carolina has vowed to block votes on both hegel and cia nominee john brennan by invoking the partisan dispute over the deadly attacks on u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. speaking to cbs news, lindsey graham said he would place a hold on the votes unless the white house provides confirmation on its response to the incident. >> i don't think we should allow britain to go forward with the cia directorship, hagel to be confirmed as secretary of defense, until the white house gives us an accounting. what did the president do? >> the pentagon has announced an expansion of benefits offered to gay and lesbian couples. members of the military in same- sex relationships will receive full access to base facilities and groups, as well as joint assignments. but a number of benefits will still be denied, including health-insurance coverage and on base housing. those restrictions are expected to remain in place until the 1996 defense of marriage act is fully repealed. a federal judge has overturned a state law in arizona barring funding for the reproductive service

on hold the nomination of john brennan to serve as director of the c.i.a. that's also why i voted to not end debate on the hagel nomination. i do not believe senator hagel has adequately explained his activities in their financing since he left the senate. what is he referring to specifically there? >> chuck hagel, former republican senator from nebraska, doesn't and didn't want to tell his former colleagues in the senate everything about where he got paid to speak pro-arab groups that he talked to that compound and complicate previous statements that he had made about the so-called jewish lobby, referring to the united states as connection to israel. for rand paul, this is extra tricky. this sounds a little confusing, but imagine this, the foreign policy of libertarian minded conservative republicans like rand paul has more in common with chuck hagel than it does with john mccain. they are opposed to intervention. they're in favor of cutting defense budgets as part of an overrecall reduction in government spending. so libertarians like the idea of chuck hagel, who wants to be par
